Surprise Fight at the PSC Over Appalachian Power Energy Efficiency Programs
In a surprise move, the West Virginia Public Service Commission (PSC) Staff proposed to stop all energy efficiency programs in the state.

We need your help to protect energy efficiency in West Virginia! Contact the PSC today to ask to Commissioners to keep and expand AEP's energy efficiency programs.More
